Should I see the Doctor or Nurse Practitioner?  Nurse Practitioners are highly trained specialist nurses who have completed further education and training so that they can provide advanced nursing care and prescribe medication.  They can provide treatment and advice for many of the problems that traditionally you saw your Dr about in the past.  If you are unsure if they can deal with your problem please ask at Reception.

Self-referral to physiotherapy - freephone 0800 9179390

NHS Tayside offer a self-referral service, which means you can make an appointment to see a physiotherapist without having to see your GP first.

Self-referral is becoming more widely practised and it's particularly popular for people with long-term conditions who know what treatment they need.

The benefits of self-referral include:

    saving time for both GPs and patients
    reducing waiting times
    improving attendance levels at appointments
    empowering patients to manage their condition

If you feel you may benefit from this service, please contact the freephone number above to discuss your particular requirments.
